(Or the Alamo.)
After one of the most incredible runs I’ve ever seen – you’ll see it on SportsCenter – Oregon leads Oregon State, 37-17, at halftime. (Had to edit because neither of these teams plays defense.)
Oregon RB Jeremiah Johnson’s run is double awesome. Make sure you catch it.
For good measure, Oregon got a pick 6 with 43 seconds left before half.
This helps Iowa this way: An Oregon victory would knock Oregon State out of the lead in the Pac-10 and would give USC the conference’s BCS bid, opening up a BCS spot for Ohio State.
Two Big Ten teams in the BCS (Penn State is in the Rose Bowl) brings everybody up a notch.
Michigan State looks strong for the Capital One. The next slot would be 9-3 Northwestern and 8-4 Iowa for the Outback Bowl. Whichever isn’t picked for that would be in the Alamo Bowl.
Sounds like Wisconsin has talked its way into the Insight, so that would leave Minnesota with the Champs Sports.
With two BCS teams and seven bowl-eligibles, the Big Ten wouldn’t have enough teams to fill the Motor City Bowl. Last year, 6-6 Iowa stayed home. This year, 6-6 would’ve been just good enough.
